The confirmed location will be at Level 2 of VivoCity, and the pancake café is set to open in June.

This is indeed the year of many high profile openings in Singapore, including Shake Shack, Burger and Lobster and The Alley at Jewel Changi Airport.

As for Gram, THIS is the OG of Japanese instagrammable wobbly pancakes.

You may have seen videos of Gram’s Pancakes which made their way around social media, of stacks of 3 pancakes being ‘shaken’ on plates.

Gram is famous for its 3-stacked “Premium Pancakes”, each 4 cm thick, served with syrup, butter and whipped cream.

It is all about the texture – ultra-fluffy, soufflé-like, and melt-in-your-mouth.

You can possibly look out for offerings such as Classic Pancakes, Tiramisu Pancakes, Caramelised Banana Pancakes, Mixed Fruits & Chocolate Pancakes, and French Toast.

I once had the Tiramisu Pancakes, which had a more typical pancake texture, though the cocoa powder and light delicious cream made it a lot more appealing and enjoyable.

Expect long queues and loads of “pancake selfies” and boomerang videos when it opens. Stay tuned here for updates.

  1. Hello danielfooddiary,

    There has been some concerns about Gram’s trademark practices in Japan that I think needs to be brought to everyone’s attention. They have copied from many other IPs in the past, including a Singaporean brand, Tiramisu Hero.

    The original Gram cafe in Osaka was renamed “Bran Cafe” and eventually closed down after losing their customers to the new unethical Gram cafe that was posing as them. Tiramisu Hero also had to be renamed “Tiramisu Star” in Japan.

    Here are the relevant articles for your reference:

    It would be best that a company such as Gram isn’t given the opportunity to flourish and potentially exploit other brands in the future. Singapore is known for its thriving and diverse food culture, which you’ve shown much appreciation for through your blog. We should give credit where it’s due to protect the earnest, hard work put in by our F&B scene.

    It is up to your discretion to help spread awareness but it would be much appreciated if you’d at least remove all posts related to Gram cafe so the business no longer gets the publicity it doesn’t deserve.

    Thanks so much!
